Previously we told you regarding AT&T unlocking off-contract iPhone devices, now the second-largest US telecom carrier is reportedly begging to unlock in-contract iPhones for the United States military personnel deployed abroad
AT&T subscribers can now slip in a SIM card from another wireless operator and use their 3G GSM iPhones with compatible cellular networks on both overseas and in the United States.
Macrumor reports :-
In addition to unlocking phones for off-contract customers, AT&T is also quietly unlocking iPhones for U.S. service members still under contract with the carrier.
AT&T declined to comment, but we have independently confirmed that AT&T is unlocking phones for service members upon request. Deployed soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines should contact AT&T customer service to get more information about having their iPhones unlocked.
The manifest also suggests that the Federal law mandates that upon presentation of their military orders, carrier are to suspend their service without penalty for deployed military personnel. AT&T has chosen this unlock approach regardless of the fact that they are not supposed to unlock the handsets.
So head-over to the AT&T’s support chat page, fill out the form and send your IMEI number.
